Clichy blasts Adebayor for leaving Arsenal for money

Posted By: Staff

London, July 25 (ANI): Arsenal defender Gael Clichy has slammed former teammate Emmanuel Adebayor for leaving the team 'only for the money'.

Adebayor had claimed that abusive Arsenal fans forced him into a 25 million pound move to Manchester City.

But Clichy reckons the switch was all about the hitman almost doubling his pay packet to 150,000 pounds a week.

"I really believe if you are a player who thinks only about money then you could end up at Manchester City. You have to think if you want to play for a big club and have your image or if you want to play for a good club and earn big money," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

"When you ask someone to move for something like 300,000 pounds a week it is just crazy."

Clichy also ridiculed Adebayor's warning that Manchester City is set to nick Arsenal's Champions League spot.

Eastlands boss Mark Hughes has spent 80 million pounds this summer in a bid to gatecrash the Big Four. (ANI)
